Rorty VI 144
Rorty: (According to Wittgenstein: what would it look look when the sun revolved around the earth (ie just like it)?:
Qualia/Dennett: (such as smart and Place): "How would it look if there really were nothing more than a compound of electrochemical processes in your brain?" ((s) that is the same).
I 274
Mind/Dennett: "PDP": Model of parallel distributed processing. Davidson, like Dennett: therefore the mind is not its own residence. VsDescartes.
Mind/Meaning/Dennett: there once was a time when neither existed, nor error or function and no reasons. They were created along the way of the tiny improvements that evolution brought with it. (Finite regress).
I 274ff
Finite sequence of steps, without ever having to draw a line.
Mind/Dennett: that s what mind is: no wonder apparatus, but a huge, semi-designed and self-transformaing compound of small appliances, each of which has its own designhistory and plays its own role. >Homunculi.
I 283
Robot/Dennett: from the fact that we are descended from robots (e.g. hemoglobin, etc.) does not follow that we are robots! We are descended from bacteria, but we are not bacteria. Neither are we monkeys. But we are composed of robots!
I 525
Mind/Evolution/Dennett: today, each and everyone of us is able to understand ideas that would have been unthinkable for geniuses from the generation of our grandparents.
II 183
Mind/Dennett: a human mind without paper and pencil, without language to compare notes and making sketches is something we’ve never met.
